When word that Apple was planning an iPhone launch in September this year hit, the other big guys in the space all seemed to get scurrying. Microsoft’s Windows 8/Nokia event was planned for September 5th in New York City and announced on August 15th.
Why are these guys all lining up Apple to be the main event for the holidays? Why not wait until after Apple’s event? Google moving Google I/O until after the WWDC event certainly seemed to help the Nexus 7?
It doesn’t matter. These three major players will all get their few days of fame and then totally get washed out by the iPhone event on the 12th.
